Accenture Federal Services will bid and compete as a prime contractor on task orders to conduct research and development, rapid prototyping, and solution delivery services that advance the ability of the U.S. Air Force’s Base Defense System to respond to adversary threats. These threats range from small unmanned systems to hypersonic missiles.

"We look forward to helping the Air Force Base Defense System test innovative, mission-critical ways of using intelligence data collected from existing sensors and cameras," said Stephen Carlon, Accenture Federal Services managing director, C4ISR lead. "We’re excited to build upon our longstanding partnership with the U.S. Air Force to advance its ability to make highly effective threat mitigation decisions."

Accenture Federal Services brings a pair of proven digital engineering solutions to support the Air Force Base Defense system, which have already been successfully deployed in dozens of systems across the Department of Defense. Ageon ISR is a real-time mission control and forensic analysis solution, and PICARD is a sensor fusion platform capable of unlocking data otherwise trapped in legacy environments. The company will also provide expertise in the development of synthetic environments through the use of virtual reality (VR).

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Architectures and Integration Directorate expects work on awarded task orders to be completed by 2032.
